WestBrom talentSCOUT.


Recommended Posts

Here ive started a thread all about West Bromwich Albion's future prospects. The baggies are regarded to have a very good youth system and many of late have come through the ranks and either performed well for them or moved on to have decent careers. Chris Woods looks the most promising of all prospects soo far from last season.

However ill be searching deeper into the youth ranks where alot currently perform for the England national team in their respective age groups etc.

First up is..

Saido Berahino

Nationality: English

Age: 18

Position: Forward

Club: West Bromwich Albion

DB: rated 75

.Berahino is third from the left, scoring for the England under-17s against Turkey.

Factfile.

This young forward has definetly been rated one of England's future hits for a while now. The English pacey Berahino is one of many that are coming up and out of the Albion's acadamy and into the reserves, alongside Sam Mantom and George Thorne (both on DB).

Saido has not appeared for the first team and seems along way off it aswell. But he pure pace and ability on the ball is deadly to give too much time. He is deadly from free-kicks aswell chasing the ball and holding it up. It is debate-able if he will follow in Chris Woods footsteps, however being a much smaller player he could find it hard to play against stronger defenders.

His record in the England setup is remarkable, scoring on 9 occosians in 10 appearances is no mockerary. He doesnt deserve to be on the database but depending on West Brom's future FA cup ties in the next couple of years im sure he could make an appearance.

He almost joined Wolves when he was 16, however he rejected a move and stayed at West Brom. As a result he has performed well and is progressing under Reserves coach Paul Downing.

Keep your eyes on this lad for the next couple of years.

Re: WestBrom talentSCOUT.

Sam Mantom

Factfile

Age: 20

Nationality: English

Position: Midfeilder

Left Footed

Similar to Aaron Ramsey

Sam Mantom has suddenly hit the stage of the Football League. For most of the season he has been playing well for a West Brom Reserve side near the top of the table, however he has now living up to his potential and plying his trade in League One with Walsall.

The Stourbridge born midfielder is left footed and similar to the likes of Aaron Ramsey in the way that he plays simple passes but likes to push on from midfield and score goals.

He is currently at Walsall and has played every minute since he joined a couple of months ago. Playing 6 games and scoring two goals has aided Walsall to steer clear of relegation.

Potential and Future

Sam Mantom is highly regarded at West Brom and maybe another season on loan could enhance his development. One thing that is holding him back is that he hasnt played week in week out footbal for a whole season yet, after having spells at different clubs over the years. This may have hindered his development as he is already 20 years old.

Age isnt an issue, he will be again training with the first team at West Brom in pre-season and will look to get minutes for the first team. His only problem is that Scott Allan and George Thorne are currently ahead of him who also play in midfield roles.

Still one lad to keep an eye on in the lower leagues.

CURRENTLY ON DB: 75

Yeahh he has had solid year or two, once i do his factfile you'll be able to see his stats, he looks promising if he continues his development and continues to play more regularly in the reserves. B)
